Town Employee Holiday Spirit
Special thanks to all of the Town employees who worked so hard to make the 2021 holiday season special and memorable.
Polar Bear Plunge
As a reminder the annual polar bear plunge will be held on 1-1-2022. The restaurants in the Commercial District will be serving food and beverage commencing at 10am. Swimmers are anticipated to enter the ocean at 2pm. Outside sales will continue through 4:30pm. Members of the Special Olympics will be present to accept donations for the program.
The Town will close Station 22.5 Street between Middle Street and I’On Avenue. Residents that will be driving to/from or about the Island that day may experience traffic delays because of the event participants. Likewise establishments along Middle Street between Station 22 to Station 22.5 Streets will have outside sales. Motorists are asked to exercise caution in and around this area.
The Town will be very busy in 2022 with a number of projects that will improve and enhance the quality of life on the Island. To name just a few you will see the new fire station progressing with anticipated delivery in August, completion of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, improvements to the wastewater collection system, replacement and/or extension of several beach boardwalks, award of a FEMA grant to craft a resiliency plan, award of a FEMA grant to map the Island stormwater system, grant funding to repair several stormwater lines and crafting a master plan to improve recreation amenities in Stith Park.
Anticipating that this will be the final correspondence from Town Hall in 2021, we take this opportunity to thank you for all of the kind words and support extended to the staff. Likewise, Town staff wishes you all the best for a joyous holiday season.
